General Information: This strain was isolated from a sample of coastal sea water near a French Antarctic station. This organism is adapted to growth at low temperatures and reactive oxygen species by a number of putative dioxygenases and fatty acid desaturases amongst other proteins. The organism can grow optimally in salt concentrations of 1.5 to 3.5% NaCl.The genome consists of 2 chromosomes, one of which may replicate unidirectionally. Some interesting features of this genome include the lack of the nucleoid-associated gene hns, a lack of genes involved in molybdopterin metabolism, a lack of the cAMP-CAP complex, and a lack of the PEP-dependent PTS system.
